Reviews forBlueberry Ice Cream Topping
"This recipe was delicious!!! I used frozen blueberries. My only caution with this recipe is that the frozen blueberries dyed our mouths/tongues a dark shade of blue, so it may not be the ideal dessert in certain settings. Thanks for the yummy recipe!"
"Tastes like blueberry pie ice cream. Very good!"
